New Glioblastoma Multiforme Data Released to the Proteomic Data Commons (PDC)
New proteomic and phosphoproteomic data from the Adult Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) Discovery Study are now available on the Cancer Research Data Commons' Proteomic Data Commons (PDC). This data, previously available only on the Cancer Proteomics Tumor Analysis Consortium (CPTAC) Data Portal, includes prospectively collected tumor tissue samples from 99 patients and 10 normal brain samples with clinical data and imaging data available on The Cancer Imaging Archive.
Glioblastoma Multiforme is the most common type of brain cancer in adults with approximately 14,000 new diagnoses each year. Following the molecular profiling of GBM tumors by The Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA), which identified somatic mutations associated with essential signaling pathways, CPTAC sought to examine both the proteomic and phosphoproteomic profile of GBM tumors.
This release includes over 2,057 files and 470 GB of data. Data is free to analyze but is embargoed for publication until March 1, 2021.
